Artist’s self portraits

Throughout history artists have created self portraits. Why? Because oneself is alway available, there is no modeling fee and one cannot give oneself Covid 19! I always want to do something constructive when I am feeling energetic so the last 4 evenings have been devoted to trying to get a lively, quick colorful portrait, using myself as a model but not taking the time to try to make the pastel painting look like me.

I like the 1st and the 4th, how about you?
